Once upon a time I was in middle school, and for the last 22 years I have been living in a middle school world – and I love it! I don’t mind the shocked looks, or the “did you choose to teach middle school?” questions, I love being able to adjust for the moment, if it should be the kindhearted teacher or the sarcastic teacher I can fill both roles.

I am the oldest of four, married for over 20 years to my best friend that I met on a blind date, and the proud mother of two very creative kids who are now making a name for themselves in college and beyond.

When I am not spending my weekends working on my classroom, or being the CEO of my family, I can be found cheering on the Crimson Tide, Los Angeles Dodgers, or ((shocking)) reading a book outside in the sun.

My life is spent teaching, laughing, and living each day to the fullest!
